"It was a pleasure to work with Richard on selling my Brooklyn apartment! I chose to work with Richard again after previously working with him to purchase the same apartment 5 year earlier, and it was a very positive experience both times. Richard was always very considerate of my concerns, timeline, and priorities, and helped me navigate through the sometimes rocky processes of buying/selling. He was always available to talk me through tough decisions and gave me solid advice that I could trust had my best interests at heart. Richard is a true professional in any situation, patient, hardworking, trustworthy, highly ethical, and an all-around good person. I would highly recommend Richard to anyone who is looking for a personal touch in a real estate agent." - E. Kleinman
"I greatly enjoyed working with Richard during my first real estate purchase. With 1.5 months of working together, we found the right apartment for me in Manhattan. Richard is very professional and responsive. He was patient and flexible, and was very willing to modify the search criteria, when needed. Richard asked good questions of the sellers' agents and I was able to learn a lot by listening to him. Richard has continued to be supportive as we work through the closing process. I highly encourage you to choose Richard for your home sale or purchase!" - A. Sorrentino
"Richard helped my husband and I purchase our first home in Brooklyn, NY. Richard was (and continues to be) great to work with. He helped us navigate the process from A to Z, and I felt as though he had our back the entire time. He was willing to work tirelessly to get us the best result possible and he was ALWAYS very responsive. We had a few not-so-comfortable moments with the seller / seller's broker, and he handled them with the utmost professionalism. We came across many brokers throughout the process, many of whom didn't compare (either too pushy, not knowledgeable enough, etc.). I would recommend Richard in a heartbeat!" - D. Even
"Richard knew that our house was not just a real estate property to be listed.
This house has been in our family for 59 years.
It was a family’s legacy and inheritance.
He handled our property with respect and sensitivity.
Before meeting Richard we interviewed 7 other realtors. We chose him because we saw that he understood the house and family situation.
Richard convinced us to list our property at a price that made it sell.... quickly and very close to listing price . He knew the market and he knew “how” to market our property.
The brochures and online pics captured our house beautifully, better than we thought it would be featured.
Richard said he would work hard for us and that he did. Every weekend, every day, every hour...
He worked tirelessly to sell our property.
He was accessible by text, email and cell at any time day or night.
I cannot express what a relief it was to hand Richard the keys and be able to know my property was in good hands.
Richard went beyond the “job” of selling the house and became part of our family.
He “cared” that much for our property....and our family home...
He was professional and very knowledgeable!!!
I would and will recommend him to anyone selling their property!!!" - M. Rios
"We met Richard while attending one of the open houses he was hosting. Immediately he was attentive and considerate about our preferences and interests. When most of the agents try to sell and continue talking, Richard listened and was genuinely interested in what we were looking for. Upon leaving the open house, we knew straightaway that we wanted Richard to represent us. Being the first time buyers we couldn’t have been happier with Richard as our real estate broker. Given the competitive landscape of Manhattan’s real estate market, it took us about a year to find the right place. Richard was patient and diligent in his search, which resulted in an amazing apartment. During this first time apartment buying process we needed all the guidance we could get and Richard was our Wikipedia for it all. Many other brokers with whom we have interacted said Richard’s professionalism and organizational skills made us stand out among other offers. He was always reachable, always on call and prompt to respond to our every email/text message. If there was a property we were interested in he quickly conducted research and provided an extensive report along with comparables and any other information we may find useful.
To make a long story short, Richard was an exemplary real estate broker, with an exceptional level of professionalism and sincere desire to help us find a new home. There wouldn’t be anyone else we could recommend higher." - Ellada and Andy
"Rich is the best. Attentive, patient and informed. He was the guy to have around when we were walking through perspective homes, as he knows what questions to ask. And then is is also the guy that constantly reached out to us to be sure we were comfortable with how the process was going. He respected the price range we chose (though he knew we could afford more), and has has teamed up with some great people that will be equally attentive and patient. We are glad we took a chance on him, and I can enthusiastically recommend him." - J. Ford and J. Bassett
